Timothy Ives MA Med Ed, BSc (Hons), Dip Dent Hyg, FHEA

Tim is a lifelong student and is now combining his experience of postgraduate education, research, communication... and life and is bringing it all together.

Tim's 'day job' is teaching, researching, public speaking, and running courses for oral healthcare professionals related to breathing, sugar, and behaviour change.

For 'fun' Tim studied over many years with the Open University for a degree in Earth and Environmental Science and is commonly seen walking and foraging in his local woodland.

This year he joined his local Toastmasters and recently embarked on a new podcasting project where he is looking to give a voice to the local community in Rutland. Check out Pub Natter
